Challenge #26 - Paper Dress

We want to see how you can turn paper into a dress.  Scrap pages, cards, journal pages, origami etc. are all welcome.

All entries are subject to the Design Teams discretion.

Any form of paper creation will be accepted as long as NO STAMPS (Digital or Rubber) have been used.
You can find our rules here for further information.

This month our sponsor is Sticker Store with a fantastic sticker package offered as a prize.

Sticker Store is located in Adelaide (Australia) but their shoppers are from all over the world. Sticker Store have no shops or showrooms to visit so, buying directly on-line from them helps keep their overheads low and the savings get past on to you. 

I think all the Design Team initially struggled with an idea but have come up with amazing creations.  So it can be done....and I hope these inspire you to have a try at attempting a 'Paper Dress'.

Lauren has created a 7" x 9" mixed media canvas using mists, book pages, texture paste, paint, rub-ons and chipboard.  

Merry was inspired by Pinterest.  The link led to Merry here (DeAnn's blog) to the original post...please check it out.  Merry used papers from here stash and the mini pink cupcakes from her baking stash.  The bodice and body form were cut with scissors.

Sarah made the skirt of her dress out of page flags (from an office supply store) and part of a paper flower.  The sentiment is a sticker.

Susan used stickers and sparkly papers, finished with a sticker sentiment.

Beth used a sticker from Sticker Store on some glitter embossed cardstock.  The silver layers on this gatefold card are embossed. 

JanR used her Silhouette to cut the beautiful dress, Jan also used store bought hello flag, flowers and bling.
